they definitely feel like the most troubling aspects and the most troubling devices they found in james holmes' apartment have been diffused and they want to remove those devices and take them to secure locations so if there need to be other det nations and taken apart and dismantled they can do that in more secure environments instead of this apartment. now what happens is the collection of evidence. authorities here want to go through his belongings and his computers and that sort of thing trying to find any kind of evidence that would help him explain how he prepared and what led to this massacre in aurora, colorado, so all of that work continues. we're seeing the local firefighters that were here starting to clean up the hoses that were brought in as a precaution, but all of the investigators and bomb technicians are still here. they say there still is several more hours of work to do inside that apartment and the material that they want to get out. they also want to begin assessing just exactly what james holmes put in there. they weren't exactly sure what kind of materials he had been us
colleagues have spoken to the woman that lives just below james holmes and is obviously one of the people that had been evacuated. she explained to us the night of the shooting that there was loud music emerging from james holmes apartment and that she had gone up there to knock on the door and at one point had called authorities to let them know about that, but they said they were too busy with the shooting and they couldn't spare someone to come over here and do that, but she said the door was unlocked and told us the door was unlocked. obviously, she's very emotional about the fact she easily could have opened up that door and who knows what would have happened if she had done that. so luckily, for her, she decided not to do that and went back downstairs, but a lot of this area remains cordoned off and remains shut down. at one point, it would allow authorities to come back and james holmes' apartment, that will be shut down for quite some time and i'm not sure whether the surrounding areas will be opened up here in the coming days. obviously, the people whoive around this area are pro
half hour or so. and right now, investigators are at the apartment of james holmes, the suspected gunman. it is full, we're told, of booby traps and explosives and trip wires. they may actually send in robots to gather more video. they've already done that once yesterday. so, let's start with new information about the victims this morning. nick valencia is following that for us in atlanta. nick, what is the latest? >> good morning, randi. we just got off the phone with the aurora police department, and we had expected to get that list, as you'd mentioned, within a matter of minutes here in the 10:00 eastern hour. unfortunately, the police now are saying they're pushing that back, and they do have a 2:00 p.m. local/4:00 p.m. eastern press conference scheduled as well as that other media briefing with the police department, where our poppi harlow is, the location where suspect james holmes lived, but that's the latest. for now, we have five victims, five names of the deceased that we've been able to confirm. a short time ago, i spoke to the father of one of the victims, john larimer
in the mail room at the university of colorado's medical campus sent by james holmes. the details inside that package apparently contained key details about friday's theater massacre and could finally expose not only how holmes allegedly executed his rampage but also answer the one question no one knows or understands. why? let's get straight to ed lavendara on the ground for us in aurora, colorado. do we know who this package was actually sent to and when? >> reporter: our understanding is that it was sent to a psychology professor there at the university of colorado where james holmes had been studying for the past year in that ph.d neuro science program. we learned about the package at the university back on monday when several buildings on campus had to be evacuated for several hours as bomb technicians and teams looked at it to make sure there were no explosive devices or anything. all of that was cleared. yesterday we learned the package had been sent to the university, was found in the mail room, and was addressed from james holmes. kyra? >> sorry about that, ed. i thought we had
didn't say a word. he didn't look at anymore in the courtroom. i'm talking about james holmes. here is he in court this morning for the first time since he opened fire in that colorado movie theater. he wasn't arraigned. he wasn't charged. that is said to happen one week from today. you see him, watch his eyes sitting there quietly next to his public defender. victims family members stared at him but he did not. he barely did much other than open and close his eyes. almost looked like he nodded off, a number of puzzling expressions. at times he looked blank. other times groggy. there might have been concern in his eyes. after a couple of minutes he was taken back to solitary confinement without holmes. he's accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others at a midnight showing of the dark knight rises. police say they caught him outside, without a fight. he was wearing a gas mask and body armor from head to toe. jim spellman in aurora for us. he was inside the courtroom when holmes appeared. jim, it was tough to get read on him during the appearance. i don't know if he was noddin
holmes. he's 24 years of age. how did police arrest him? listen to this, he never made it out of the theater apartment. police say her surrendered without a fight. we are learning more about him. such as the fact he was a phd in neuroscience at the university of colorado. he was in the process of withdrawing. police and federal agents are trying to enter the third floor apartment of holmes'. >> we're not sure what we're dealing with in the home. they appear to be incendiary devices. there's some chemical elements. they are linked together with all kind of wires. we have a lot of very smart bomb teches up there trying to figure out what we're going to do. >> ed, let's talk about what you know with that apartment. he said it's an active and difficult situation and it could take hours, if not days, for that community to be secure. >> they are trying to figure out what they are dealing with inside james holmes apartment. they don't know what they are dealing with at this point and they have to take every precaution. what is interesting is that parentally it was james holmes himsel
development in the mass shooting at a colorado theater. the suspect james holmes was seeing a doctor who specializes in schizophrenia. drew griffin is with cnn's special investigations unit. >> according to his attorney in colorado the 24-year-old accused of killing 12 and gunning down dozens of others was seeing a psychiatrist at the time of the shooting. it's a huge development that stems from that package that was mailed to a professor at the university of colorado's aurora campus on monday. according to a motion filed in colorado, just yesterday, that professor was actually james holmes' psychiatrist, dr. lynn fenton the head of student medical health services at the university of colorado's aurora campus and according to holmes' attorney mr. holmes was a psychiatric patient of dr. fenton and his communications with her are protected. that attorney is now trying to get ahold of that package and the contents of which according to cbs news supposedly describe how holmes would kill people. the information is privileged according to holmes' attorney, confidential, and should not be in th
massacre inside of that colorado movie theater. james holmes made his first court appearance since the shooting rampage that left 12 people dead, and 58 others wounded. holmes had the hair dyed bright red and orange and you can see he appeared somewhat emotionless and somber as he sat next to his attorney in the courtroom. what we know is for mall charges are going to be filed against holmes monday. the judge assigned a public defender for the case, and sometime today holmes' family is expect t expected to say something and issue a statement. i want to go to casey wian who is in san diego, and you are at the home, i believe, of the suspect's family and that they are going to be talking later today. what have they said so far? >> well, actually, suzanne, where i am is outside of the office of the criminal defense attorney named lisa dam ymiani o is represent iing the holmes' family and she says she will come out in three hours and read a prepared statement from the holmes' family and take some lim limited questions from the news media. she said that she has been in touch with mr. ho
of james holmes and what he was up to and how he pulled all of this off. >> i guess a real indicator that it wasn't going to be, or at least authorities felt pretty certain that this was going to be incredibly controlled and contained. they did not stop the traffic outside of that building. as we were watching it live we were still able to see cars streaming back and forth. at what point might they do that that they close off traffic? >> i think, if the situation they feel raises to a much more serious level, i can imagine just moments before they set off that controlled explosion inside that apartment just a little while ago, they did stop -- they asked everybody to stop moving. you can hear one of the officers over here start screaming fire in the hole. they repeated that several times and everybody stopped moving and then a few seconds later is when you heard the explosions. so in the moments before the controlled situations, they clamped everything down as best they can, but, clearly, at some point a lot of that area that you see behind me, fredericka, has been cordoned off. this
holmes and some of the details about what took place in that theater up next. >> well, after all of the shooting was done, i looked up for a brief second and i saw he was reloading and walking towards the back of the theater and the arch is up, and i saw he was walking back there and i grabbed my girlfriend and my friend and i said we have to get going, because he is reloading and now is the chance. leaving i saw a guy laying on the floor covered in blood and a lot of people ran to help him when the guy was reloading the weapon. so we just left and a bunch of people left at that time. it was just crazy. juicy brats grilled up on a thursday. the perfect use of the 7th inning stretch. get that great taste anytime with kingsford match light charcoal. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] what's the point of an epa estimated 42 miles per gallon if the miles aren't interesting? the lexus ct hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. i tell mike what i can spend. i do my best to make that work. we're driving safely. and sue saved money on brakes. now that's personal pricing. >>> investigators
